The Alex, Dublin, Ireland
Car parking is only €15 a day - not true- from 1500 check in to 12 noon check out otherwise €3 euros an hour and no flexibility for coming and going with the car. Why not state secure parking at €3 per hour instead of current ad on internet which is misleading to say the least.

Amazing hotel for a city trip!
The hotel is amazing and absolutely worth the money. The location is great for a quick city trip as everything is easy to reach in walking distance. Also, very nice pubs (like The Ginger Man) and great restaurants (Pig's Ears) nearby.
